“Women want to be treated (and deserve this) from a competent doctor, says Karen Johnson, MD, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. This is an important task, given that the bulk of medical knowledge has been gained from studying the body of an adult man. This is a fundamental lack of medical education, which affects the treatment of women. "
Women need doctors who are knowledgeable in the complex hormonal regulation of the vital activity of a woman’s body and other issues of treating and preserving a woman’s health. Many “normal” disorders in women require special attention when making a diagnosis and treatment because of likely hormonal interactions.
“It’s very good that women come to medicine at all levels,” says Dr. Johnson. Now to the fact that there are significant gaps in medical education, a lot of attention has been drawn, and these gaps are expected to be filled through research. The results of the research after testing them will be able to take advantage of doctors in their clinical practice, and this will affect the improvement of medical care for women. But it can take years. ”
